8 reasons to visit Southern Vermont

  1.  Jan to March: Ice fishing for Northern Pike and Bass on Lake St. Catherine Vermont Ice Fishing trips


2. April: Trout season opens the second Saturday in April. Small water for wild Brook Trout. Chuck likes to book afternoon half day trips on upper branches of the Battenkillto take advance of early seson hatches of Midge, early stones, blue quill and hendricksons. Vermontfishingtrips.com

3. May: Vermont Trophy Trout Program is in high gear. Target areas are East Creek in Rutland, Walloomsac River in Bennington and Otter Creek in Danby. These are very popular trips, prime dates are limited....these are really nice fish averaging from 16 to 24 inches.

4. June: What a GREAT month! Everything is fishing but the top choice are: the Walloomsac, Otter Creek and the Battenkill. I like to run either three quarter or full day trips.

5. July and August: Trout fishing is a morning affair. Targets are the Walloomsac, Battenkill and Mettawee. I also start running mountain brook trips

6. September: Is the time to fish the BATTENKILL...she is not for everyone but she is a gorgeous river.

7. October: BIRD HUNTING for Woodcock and Ruffed Grouse. Trips are limited.

8. November: Weather pending year around trout fishing opportunities on East Creek, Otter Creek and      Walloomsac river.  The 2019 booking season has begun, don't be left out!  Thank you for the visit
